The Hendrix Annual Fund

The Hendrix Annual Fund is the lifeblood of the institution; the College is able to use these gifts where they are needed most, to the immediate benefit of our students and faculty. Annual Fund dollars support all Hendrix students. While the endowment is an important source of financial support, most endowed scholarships are restricted to very specific purposes. The unrestricted nature of the Hendrix Annual Fund makes it vital to our students and faculty.

Annual Fund gifts enhance every program, every department, and every member of the Hendrix community.

Why the Annual Fund?

Annual Fund dollars provide critical resources for our students to use in the classroom and beyond, in addition to scholarships and essential financial assistance. The Annual Fund directly impacts how we recruit, retain, and educate some of the most talented students in Arkansas and across the country. For many of our students, Hendrix is the place where they realize they can bring about change - on campus, in their communities, and across the world. Donor support makes it possible.
